If it mimicks windows without breaking, would you switch to React OS?

The war on draconia MS!

Well I think Microsoft are gonna get a reboot eventually.
I've been visiting www.reactOS.org and yes they had court appearences and won against the draconians.
What really gets me frustrated is manually patching an OEM windows.
The fact its not designed to be slipstreamed.
What a bloated piece of trechary.
Best punishment for bad school kids would be manually patching Windows OEM than writing lines :P
Anyhow React mimicks MS using wine and opengl for graphics.
I love the idea of running executables at home without a $$$ MS license fee. And i wont have to touch OEM WINDOWS!

ReactOS still lacks many features. A lot of functions in its libraries are still dummy.

I'm hoping at least that by April 2014, ReactOS will have improved tenfold to the point where I no longer need to worry about continuing use of XP into the next decade and beyond.
